1. Add Water To Your Hair When Styling
As a natural, water is our best friend. After a good night sleep, we often wake up with flat hair and water is our primary source of reviving it. Many of us use a combination of products for styling, detangling and curl definition and if you’ll notice, in many cases, the hair is weighed down a bit after applying. How ever our hair is positioned when wet is how it’s going to dry. If you’re looking to add volume back into your hair, water will help with that. Once you take off your Swirly Curly bonnet, you can lightly spritz your hair, like the photo captured for Curl Keeper featured on NaturallyCurly.com, or dampen your finger tips and shake the curls out that way. Experiment with techniques to find what works best for you. Keep in mind, in most cases, you won’t get curl definition and volume at the same time. Usually the curl definition will be sacrificed in order to obtain volume. The key here is to find a middle ground and just know that at different stages of your natural hair journey, you’ll achieve different results using different methods.
